Imagine that everything you touch, any germ or even a trip to a public restroom could immediately result in a trip to the emergency room.
That’s Sally Mogren’s world.
In December 2006, Mogren was diagnosed with atypical autoimmune hepatitis, a liver disease that could have killed her within weeks, days or even hours. She has since learned to live with the disease, which requires extremely careful work. For example, she can’t wear makeup or contacts, and must limit all interactions with germs.
“There’s a lot of things you have to give up with this disease, but I refuse to give up helping people,” she said. “I’m just so grateful to be alive.”
So in looking for opportunities to volunteer, she chose the cleanest place in town: Winona Health.
